    New maxima goes down.

    Raced an automatic maxima today, one of the new ones. He was driving like an idiot before we lined up, speeding up/slowing down rapidly, etc. Got to a light behind him, and quickly switched lanes so i was next to him. The road after the light goes up a slight incline, and the two lanes merge. I took off slowly, waiting to see if he would make a move. He punched it, as did I soon after. Pulled on him quite nicely up to the middle of third gear, and shut down. Stupid kid goes down!

    16.5 is a little on the high side for daily driving. I wouldn't push the stock turbo over 16psi.
